As we go through the aging process, collagen production in our skin decreases naturally. As a result, you might start to see wrinkles, as well as other signs of aging. Hourglass Aesthetics & Salon offers Sculptra Aesthetic as a treatment to help stimulate the skin’s natural regenerative process while also aiding in the restoration of lost collagen. Proteins, such as collagen, are essential in the body that help to support cells and tissue. Collagen is a vital protein found in connective tissue that helps maintain healthy connective tissue to keep the skin firm, young, and smooth.
This FDA-approved injectable slowly and gradually restores facial volume over time.
What is Sculptra?
Sculptra is an injectable that promotes collagen synthesis in the skin to help restore plumpness and suppleness to the skin.
How does Sculptra work?
Sculptra Aesthetic is injected directly into your skin with a syringe to promote collagen production in the body. Naturally, due to the increased collagen synthesis, wrinkles melt away, and facial volume is restored.
Who is a candidate for Sculptra?
If you are looking to add or restore volume to shallow regions of your face that you've acquired due to aging or weight reduction, you're probably a great candidate.
Will there be any discomfort or pain?
Bruising, bleeding, itching, swelling, soreness, discomfort, and redness are all possible side effects of injections. These symptoms will subside after 2 to 6 days.
When can I expect to see results after my treatments?
Sculptra causes your own body to produce collagen, which takes time. The typical process takes six weeks, but it might vary from person to person. After two or three treatments, the majority of our patients see a substantial difference.
How long should results last?
You could expect your results to last two to three years once you've finished all of your treatments.
